Thank You For the Music

When you write

you never know

just how much you can affect

some young boy or girl

from your hometown

or across the world

you write for love

or to mend a broken heart

for joy

courage

or loss

with every song

you touch a life

show someone they’re not alone

that this isn’t the end

to keep fighting one more day

you’re a parachute

ready to catch us when we fall

be it in or out of love

you show us how

to find paradise

in all our fears

many more try

to share their passion

pain and talent

with millions of others

trying to change the world

the few who make it

are challenged daily

to maintain the perfection

in the imperfection

called the human race

with every song

you touch a life

show someone they’re not alone

that this isn’t the end

to keep fighting one more day

you’re a parachute

ready to catch us when we fall

be it in or out of love

you show us how

to find paradise

in all our fears

we all have these emotions

some more vivid than others

yet the ugly ones

make the best songs

some make us cry

and face our demons inside

battles fought alone

now have an army larger than any nation

with every song

you touch a life

show someone they’re not alone

that this isn’t the end

to keep fighting one more day

you’re a parachute

ready to catch us when we fall

be it in or out of love

you show us how

to find paradise

in all our fears

we have you to thank

our fearless leaders

shining a light of hope ahead

catching us when we fall

and proving we all have battle scars

with every song

you touch a life

show someone they’re not alone

that this isn’t the end

to keep fighting one more day

you’re a parachute

ready to catch us when we fall

be it in or out of love

you show us how

to find paradise

in all our fears
